    Stop Origin Fracking the NT

    Origin Energy are lining up to frack the Northern Territory this year, and in the firing line are some magical places, including recharge zones of Mataranka Hot Springs.

    Traditional Owners have told us that Origin Energy has ignored their concerns about fracking and not properly laid out the risks involved.

    Fracking the NT would be a disaster for the landscape, communities and waterways. Plus it would unleash massive emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas, and fuel global warming.

    We need to build a powerful movement of people willing to spread the word and take on Origin at every level, from their head offices to their board rooms.

    Greedy water grab

    This week coal mining giant Whitehaven spent $700,000 buying up some of the only water available for drought stricken farmers.

    They paid triple the price that local farmers could afford to pay.

    Chip in today to expose the outrageous double standard which sees our few remaining water resources going to wash dirty coal.

    Let’s build on the momentum that we’ve grown right across Australia in 2018, and stop this terrible misuse of our water for coal and gas mining.

    Make Coal Giants Pay for Mine Clean-Up

    Our new report – Abandoned Mines in Queensland: Toxic Time-bomb or Employment Opportunity? – calls for big mining companies to cover the cost of rehabilitating the State’s abandoned mines and estimates that this would generate 6000 jobs in regional Queensland!

    There are too many large abandoned mines, and the full cost of cleaning them up is too large and should not fall on taxpayers. If mines are levied to pay for the clean up, they can also create jobs in the process.

    Why should we miss out on hundreds of schools and hospitals because we’re footing the bill for the mess left behind by irresponsible mining companies?

    We call on the NSW and Queensland Premiers to strengthen weak mining laws and force companies to honour their obligations to rehabilitate their mines. The following needs to be done:

    1. Increase the required deposit to cover rehabilitation costs
    2. Require all future mines to backfill their mining pits and protect water resources
    3. Establish an independent authority to monitor and enforce mine rehabilitation
    4. Penalise companies who breach rehabilitation requirements.


    Together we can ensure that the mining industry is held to account and that our land and water resources are protected against abandoned mines.

    Our common home

    Bishops, wine-makers, livestock producers and conservationists have penned a joint letter to NSW Premier Mike Baird calling on him to protect our common home from a coal mining industry that is out of control.  You can read the full text of the joint letter here

    Our common home, our farmland, rivers, villages and bushland are being torn up or ruined for coal mining. How long are coal affected communities expected to wait for the Government to do something to fix up coal mining? 

    We've put an ad in Mike Baird's local paper, the Manly Daily, and want all of you to give him a call and add your voice to the push to reform coal mining and save our communities, landscapes and rural industries. Can you call him?
